Environment: One drink of this and you are at a BBQ, or any type of gathering, maybe a bon fine, sitting on the beach. This beer is 12-month drinkable, it blends with all occasions, but really stounds out when the weather is a bit above 80*F.
Recommend: Yes. Not because this ale is a recipe I designed and brewed myself. But because it is a very flexible, and tasty ale. The ABV is light, the IBU’s are at a good location, and the beer just refreshes you with each drink. It is a very easy beer to drink, cook with, and pretty much anything you want from the ale. This is the only yellow beer that is a staple here at my brewery, that right there says a lot when I am willing to sacrifice a tap for a yellow beer. The only way to get your hands on one of these is to swing by the house, belly up to the table, and start a conversation.
